Committed to our goal of delivering an amazing user experience, we’ve recently started developing a new mobile web using Google’s PWA framework.
PWA stands for progressive web app, a mobile website that contains most of the potential functions and benefits that a typical mobile app has:
- Engaging: Feel like a natural app on the device, with an immersive user experience
- Fast: Respond quickly to user interactions
- Reliable: Load instantly, even in uncertain network conditions
- Add to homescreen: Progressive Web Apps are installable and live on the user’s home screen, without the need for an app store
As you can see, our new mobile web will have a resemblance with Simple Radio, and be much faster. Users will still be able to listen to stations, add them to favorites, search and browse among station names, genres, cities and countries.
We’ve done some preliminary testing and so far the PWA is outperforming our current mobile web in a bunch of user-related metrics, such as average session time and sessions per user. People that use the PWA return more often than those from the mobile web.
We are planning to do a full rollout of our new mobile web experience with PWA later in 2019 🙂
So as we always say, stay tuned!
